EDF is the yearly meeting place for industry, research, policy makers, and community initiatives to discuss the challenges and opportunities of Big Data in Europe. These aspects have both a technical - in terms of technology and infrastructure needed to master the volumes, heterogeneity, and dynamicity of Big Data - and a socio-economic component, speaking about emerging types of products and services and their commercialization, innovation and business models, but also policies and regulations.
EDF bring together all stakeholders involved in the data value chain to exchange ideas and develop actionable roadmaps addressing these challenges and opportunities to strengthen the European data economy and its positioning worldwide. The roadmaps will be offered as a contribution to the definition of research, development, and policy activities at the level of the European Union institutions and those of its member states.
A call for contribution will be issued in late 2012. If you have any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
